“Great Hotel, Excellent Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The 3 days we spent here were relaxing and I would highly recommend this hotel. It is located one block away from the Pacific, literally 100 yards. 100 yards in the other direction is Manuel Antonio National Park. The family that runs the hotel is kind and we were welcomed with smiles. At night, it was quiet and away from the busy and noisy beachfront bars, etc. In the morning, there were at least a dozen different birds that were able to be seen from the rocking chairs in front of our room. A great spot that I hope to return to!

Stayed at this hotel for one night June 4, 2013. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. Close walking distance to the park which was super convenient. The hotel also accommodated our small dog that was travelling with us. I would definitely recommend this hotel if travelling to Manuel Antonio and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Stayed on the 2nd floor. Room had a king and twin bed.

I love and recommend this hotel because its extremely well located, really close to the main entrance of the National Park Manuel Antonio. I stayed once in a hotel by the mountains and the view was nice, but at the end is all about this National Park and being close to it. The rooms and the pool are great for the price you pay. Clean, awesome food and great hospitality.

The biggest asset of this hotel is the friendly staff; but when it comes to being in Manuel Antonio, this hotel is pretty close to the public beach and the night life, but far enough to don't pickup any noise, the next morning you'll appreciate being, again, within walking distance to the park entrance. The pool is upstairs, is kinda of interesting on it's building design. Loved the breakfast (which is included, but oddly enough is charged on a different bill... but is still part of the price you get)

Room Tip: Close to the pool... those are away from whatever noise that you might hear (well, I heard nothing!)

If you´re looking for a quiet relaxing place with graet food to get away, this is te place to be, nice pool surrounded with the nature´s voice only. Try the shrimps, or any other meal, best food in the zone! Nice quality and good price for nice and clean rooms, also very helpful people in the reception desk that will make tour tours/trips easier to plan.
Fully recommended!

While in Costa Rica, we stayed two nights at Hotel Villa Bosque, which was across the road from a long, beautiful white sand beach on the Pacific Ocean. The hotel has a lovely Spanish Colonial look to it, with an enclosed garden containing a fountain, tables and chairs, and, of course, beautiful plants and flowers. The room was average size, wih two queen size beds, a table and two chairs, and a very large, walk-in shower. A full breakfast, served on the patio, was included in the room rate. The staff was outstanding, from helping us with boarding passes for our returns flight from San Jose, to a creative finish to a lovely dinner after sunset (bananas foster). We felt like we were treated as special guests each and every time we asked a question. Special thanks to the chef and the entire hotel staff for making our stay so memorable. Best of all, Manuel Antonio National Park is a five minute walk for the hotel.

Room Tip: We liked the second floor rooms facing the beach
